|"Lumberjack" - Western Movie Humor - Harry Sherman Productions, Inc.|
Comedy in B-westerns tended to be forced and to depend heavily on knock-about slapstick. Andy Clyde, a former Mack Sennett comedian and Hoppy's sidekick in many of the Hopalong Cassidy westerns, relied on mild slapstick while delivering some really funny lines.

|White Zombie: Excerpt - Edward Halperin Productions|
After his success in Tod Browning's "Dracula," Hungarian actor Bela Lugosi (1882-1956) refused the role of the monster in "Frankenstein" because he believed all the grunting required of him would be beneath his dignity as an actor.
